    I am considering applying to university in a few years to study adult nursing because i really want to become a nurse...

    My gcse’s are average but i have 10 gcse’s all c or above

    I have grade C in maths, english language and science double award ‘CC’. Are these grades good enough?

    Yes, don't worry about your GCSEs. Concentrate on getting your 5 A*-Cs including English and Maths for now. As long as you get that, you will be completely fine.

    What are you planning on doing after GCSE?

    I am currently doing btec extended diploma in health & social care. I already have C’s in both english and maths. I heard its very competitive and due to not having above c’s i am worried i will be at a disadvantage to other applicants.

    Honestly, don't worry about it. Do as well as you can in your diploma and I'm pretty sure usually everyone gets interview for nursing (I think) when you apply to uni.

    As long as you show that you're passionate about what you want to do in the interviews and in your personal statement, everything will be fine and grades don't really matter that much (as long as you're somewhere in the ballpark of the entry requirements).

    Don't worry about your GCSEs know that many are in your scenario but lack those all crucial science GCSEs, therefore get into college and I'd advise you have one natural science such as Biology and a relevant subject such as Psychology followed by another subject you truly enjoy!
    When you're choosing a degree make sure it's accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) so then you can progress onto becoming an Adult Nurse with the NHS.
